The 2008 Dodge Avenger scores high in cabin space ratings, with many reviewers commenting on the car's headroom.

"The Avenger's cabin is spacious enough for two six-foot, two-inch occupants to sit one behind the other in comfort," according to Automobile. This is confirmed at ConsumerGuide, which reports "adult-adequate headroom with no excess legroom," although a "narrow cabin rules out three-abreast adult seating." Reviewers nonetheless appreciate the Dodge Avenger's well-designed and comfortable front seats. Autoblog calls these 2008 Dodge seats "relatively comfortable [with] good lateral support." The rear seats are also comfortable for two adults.

Bringing down the 2008 Dodge Avenger's overall score in this category are its low marks for both cargo room. ConsumerGuide laments the Dodge Avenger's interior stowage options, which are "limited to a too-narrow center console and smallish glovebox." Other reviews read by TheCarConnection.com also made note of the relatively small trunk, especially when compared to competitors. On the other hand, Autoblog gleefully notes "interior accoutrements include a bevy of delightful beverage-centric items, including the Chill Zone storage compartment mounted in the dash and the heated/cooled cup holders."

Cars.com is critical of this 2008 Dodge cabin: "the Avenger's interior is long on creature features but short on quality...the center storage console feels and sounds a bit cheap when you open and close it." ConsumerGuide, however, reports that the Dodge Avenger "R/T has upgraded trim, which, with the available leather seating, somewhat improves the interior ambiance." Edmunds acknowledges "although not exactly premium in feel, the Avenger's cabin is a step up from the outgoing Stratus."

ConsumerGuide cites noise levels, reporting "wind noise is effectively hushed, even at highway speed," but adding that "lack of suspension refinement contributes to excess of creaks and groans over poor road surfaces."

Conclusion

Cabin room is good inside the 2008 Dodge Avenger, but mediocre finishes and road noise fall far short of the class leaders.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
